101 Tips for a Happier Marriage
I’m sure you’ve experienced it – socialising with a couple as one lists the other’s bad habits in a passive-aggressive manner, as you awkwardly try to laugh it off or change the subject. Or catching up with a friend to hear her complain endlessly about her husband – not in a constructive way where she’s looking for advice, but rather in a “men are so stupid” way. Let’s be honest: these scenarios are pretty cringe-worthy. Unity is so important for a couple’s relationship to be strong! If you have something critical to say, it should be dealt with behind closed doors, and then you should move on instead of hanging onto resentments. Not to mention that the way one speaks and thinks of their spouse is how they end up relating to them – hence best to keep it positive!
The dignity of work is an elusive quality to which we pay lip service, but often forget. It disappears when we work only for money, or only for career advancement, or only for social prestige. But most people don't have jobs which allow them to buy a new car every year or run big corporations. They get up early every morning, work hard, raise a family, make a few friends, contribute to their community, and retire. Their names never appear in the newspaper, but they are the bedrock of our society. Karl Stephan pays tribute to one of these men, a black blacksmith in central Texas named Ulysses Cephas, in a wise and touching essay. Read it below.
